Center of Excellence. Dr. Nezhat is an active and high profile endometriosis surgeon who was a pioneer in laproscopic procedures for excision of endometriosis. Is able to operate on Deep Infiltrating Endometriosis with an assistant surgeon. Takes some insurance but double and triple check with both his offices and insurance company before booking surgery on what exactly will be covered. Philosophy: “We treat every patient individually and separately, based on different factors, type of endometriosis, her goals, etc.”
Extensive research background. Is able to operate on Deep Infiltrating Endometriosis. Philosophy: “My medical practice is characterized by my underlying philosophy of treating patients with respect and dignity. I use a comprehensive, open-‐minded approach to providing leading-‐edge health care. My reputation as an endometriosis specialist was earned through my surgical skills and results following successful treatment of some the most difficult cases of endometriosis via laparoscopic excision surgery. Complete surgical removal of endometriosis is an essential step in achieving successful treatment outcomes. I believe that surgery is only part of the answer to restoring the health of patients with endometriosis and pelvic pain. I employ a multidisciplinary approach, utilizing leading edge, traditional Western medicine and alternative integrative medicine, combined with an open mind and trust in the patient. Treating this complex disease has not only resulted in my becoming a better physician, it has made me an expert in treating an array of less complex conditions as well.”
